Privacy Bingo Cards: US State Law Edition

Privacy Bingo: US State Law Edition offers an interactive way to help you navigate the complexity of the data privacy landscape across the US. We developed a set of bingo cards – one per state – that allows you to compare certain features of each state law in a compact format. Each Bingo card is not a comprehensive summary of each state law, it isn’t meant to be. The goal of Privacy Bingo is to provide a balcony view of the trends across the states, and a tool that we can add to as new states add to the Privacy Bingo. We hope you find them informative and useful; and have a little fun with a complicated and evolving topic. Click the links below to access and download the cards.
